Digital Microscopes

Page history last edited by Robbie Polan 1 year, 10 months ago


View a powerpoint of digital microscopic pictures taken by prekindergarten students. This ppt can be used in a game format, first looking at a macro picture, making a guess of what it might be, and then seeing the full image on the next slide. 


SmartScope and a PC = easy to use and affordable. Their website (under the Support tab) also has short video clips of how to use the many different features. Go to http://smartschoolsystems.com/supports/1 to view the videos. This is a great microscope that holds up in an early childhood classroom. If you use a Mac computer, they have downloadable software, too. They are willing to answer you questions by email or phone. 




This is a digital microscopic picture of water flowing down an ice balloon -

This video was taken with the Smartscope's time lapse feature. There were some tiny hidden surprises when we played it back!

The iGo is a wireless Smartscope that works with an iPad, iPad mini, iPhone, or Android tablet. It makes observing nature outside a breeze, as seen in the pictures below:



Students use the wireless ProScope with the iPad2 to look at a toads bumpy skin - expensive, but advantages of being wireless.
